Further differencing is reccommended
The Kwiatkowski-Phillips-Schmidt-Shin (KPSS) test, KPSS Trend = 1.70 p-value = 0.01 indicates that the data is not stationary.
The Shapiro-Wilk test returned W = 0.76 with a p-value =0.00 indicating the data does not follow a normal distribution.
A skewness score of -1.15 indicates the data are substantially skewed.
Hartigan's dip test score of 0.05 with a p-value of 0.00 inidcates the data is multimodal
